The Southeastern Lady Lions’ Soccer Team finishes a strong season consisting of numerous victories resulting in a trip to the playoffs and the Southland Conference.
This season the women’s soccer team finished their season at 13-5-4. The women’s soccer team also won the Southland Conference. Sadly, the Lady Lions lost to the number four seeded Auburn Tigers, who finished their record 15-5-1. The Auburn women’s soccer team advanced to the second round to play Texas Tech, who beat North Texas on Friday in Tallahassee, FL.
According to lionssports.net, Katie Noonan’s shot was deflected wide with less than 10 minutes left in the game. Vanessa Arzaluz’s corner kick was blocked out of the goal by Auburn’s goalkeeper. Maddie Kresevic’s header was no good at the 8 minute mark. All these providing a glimpse of how the Lady Lions match with Auburn went. Auburn kept pressure the whole game and it was hard for Southeastern to find their rhythm.
Southeastern did end on a positive note despite of how the playoffs ended. Knowing that they could compete with any school and a lot of teams in the nation know that now.
“This was a great learning year for me and I am going to continue to get better as I go,” said freshman Sofia Olsson.
Winning conference was a big accomplishment not only for this team, but for the school and Southeastern athletics. Even the student body were engaged and aware of what was going on and from all sports to the faculty supported them.
“Our team will look to improve and do better next season” said Freshman Vanessa Arzaluz.
Next season the Lady Lions will be looking to take a similar approach and to do better in the playoffs. They will have key players returning and it should provide a fun season to watch for next year.
“This offseason is big for us and I’m excited to work with my team to prepare for next season.” said Freshman Payton Colson.
